Variant ID.  2966
Epitope Seq.  {R}SLYNTVATL
Variant Seq.  {k}SLfNTiAvL
Mutations -/K Y/F V/I T/V
Epitope Location -1K Y4F V7I T9V
HXB2 Location -77K Y80F V83I T85V
Mutation Type LE: literature escape
Epitope Subtype B
Variant Subtype B
Method Sequence
Note CTL selection at TCR contact residues is predicted to drive {k}SLfNTVAvL (SL9-KFV) or {k}SLfNTiATL(SL9-KFI) or {R}SLFNTiAvL(SL9-IV) to {k}SLfNTiAvL (SL9-KFIV), reversion to SL9-KFV is predicted to result from selection for optimal viral growth.
